Have you ever commanded someone 'You CAN'T sit with us!' and instantly regretted your lack of kindness? Well, national Mean Girls Day is just the day for you! A day that celebrates the cult classic Mean Girls movie and all its fetch quotes.
It's national mean girls day on the 3rd October.
National Mean Girls Day, unlike its name suggests, doesn’t call for us to be mean to each other. It’s rather a playful day observed on October 3rd that honours the popular 2004 movie, Mean Girls. We recorded 6430 mentions of this day in 2015 making it one of the most popular movie-related day!
Yes! And there’s a fun fact behind this. The day gets its date from a line in the movie where Aaron Samuels (played by Jonathan Bennett) asks Cady Heron (played by Lindsay Lohan) the date, to which she responds, 'It's October 3rd'. Ever since then, October 3rd has been the unofficial day to celebrate this iconic teen movie.
Well, strictly speaking, wearing pink isn't mandatory today (that's reserved for Wednesdays, obviously), but bonus points if you do. Many people celebrate this day by watching the movie, sharing gifs and quotes with their friends, or even having a Mean Girls themed party. It's all about having fun and enjoying this iconic piece of pop culture. Just remember, no actual meanness allowed!
In 2004, the teen comedy film 'Mean Girls' was released. Directed by Mark Waters and written by Tina Fey, the movie followed the story of Cady Heron, a teenager who moves to a new school and becomes entangled in the complex world of cliques and high school drama. The film garnered widespread popularity and became an instant classic, resonating with audiences around the world.
Following its release, 'Mean Girls' quickly became a cultural phenomenon. The movie's well-crafted script, catchy one-liners, and relatable characters contributed to its immense popularity. Memorable lines like 'On Wednesdays, we wear pink' and 'You can't sit with us' became iconic phrases that entered everyday conversation. The film inspired numerous memes, parodies, and references in popular culture, solidifying its place in the zeitgeist.
Building on the film's success, 'Mean Girls' was adapted into a Broadway musical, which premiered in 2018. Written by Tina Fey, the musical transported the story to the stage, incorporating music and dance to enhance the narrative. It received critical acclaim and further expanded the reach of the 'Mean Girls' brand, attracting a new generation of fans.
In recent years, 'Mean Girls' has gained a dedicated fan base that celebrates the movie annually on October 3rd, now known as 'Mean Girls Day.' This date became significant due to a memorable scene where Cady's love interest, Aaron Samuels, asks her what day it is, and she responds, 'It's October 3rd.' Fans of the movie use this day to share their love for the film on social media, quoting lines, posting memes, and rewatching the movie together.
